Bitumen & Binders

icon youtube

We have applied our expertise in Advanced Asphalt Mixtures Testing to Advanced Bitumen and Binder Testing with the development of a complete range of dynamic and static testing equipment. All our systems are fully automated and perform tests ranging from binder ageing, workability, penetration grading to performance grading and more. Our advanced machines and equipment are trusted by highways departments, national laboratories, universities, asphalt producers, oil companies, paving contractors and consulting engineers worldwide.
